The sense of unity and appreciation for this great county started recently with the advancements of Team USA in the world cup and continues with the 4th of July weekend on the horizon. At Bird Dog Bay, we are excited to celebrate this special holiday with all the festivities Chicago and our country has to offer: Whether you will be attending attend the Freedom Fest at Navy Pier, or simply have a neighborhood cookout and watch the nighttime fireworks, the 4th is an amazing time to gather with friends and family and celebrate our Independence Day. Show your patriotism with us this 4th of July, by sporting  sporting the classic American flag with our ‘Star & Stripes’  tie in blue (pictured above),  America’s favorite companion  ‘Black Lab Heaven’ tie in red (shown above), or our traditional ‘America’ socks (pictured below).

Don’t forget, wherever you are in Chicago and across the US of A, be “Proud to be an American!” Happy Fourth of July to everyone!







World Cup

The world cup has seemed to gain some steam here in the United States! Being based in Chicago, we at Bird Dog Bay have seen first hand the intersection of patriotism and the passion for sports create a powerful movement. Grant park was filled to capacity with fans, young and old, looking to catch a glimpse of the US Men’s soccer team performance on a large screen monitor placed in the park for the Ghana and Portugal games.

The passionate energy has carried over to our ties here at Bird Dog Bay. Steve’s World Cup tie is a phenomenal example of our excitement and support for the sport and the US Men’s team. Whether you will be chanting the “I believe” US soccer call at the local pub, or sneakily watching the match on your desktop a t work, the world cup tie is a perfect complement to any outfit to show your support! The world cup is an exciting event that brings together people from all over the world and seems to divide and unite folks in mysterious ways.

Whoever you are rooting for, this tie has you covered. Soccer, futball, whatever… This world cup has proven the excitement has captivated the United States, and is here to stay.
